The construction was possible thanks to the donations collected in the churches and the private contributions of the citizens of the crown of Aragon, mainly from Valencia.
Among all the improvements and expansions that were carried out, possibly the most relevant was the work of Juan de Cervellón in 1534, which led the walls of the building to reach 4 meters thick.
